A Terrible Accident

A truck was coming down the hill near Molly Stone’s.  The brakes failed.  The truck couldn’t slow down.  It careened helplessly into the Molly Stones parking lot.  All of my family has been in that exact spot a hundred times.  We walk across the parking lot with just a quick glance for cars.  We weren’t there yesterday.

The truck hit a mother and son.  The son was killed instantly and the mother is in critical condition.

The boy was on Ethan’s little league team.  His father was the coach.  The boy is in 4th grade in the same school as Ethan and Jared.  All of us are shocked.  We don’t know how to feel.

Our hearts are with Coach Barney.
